A Wall Street worker claims he was dragged through the streets of SoHo by a yellow cab after he told the driver, “Take me to Brooklyn.”
Jerrell Horton said he’s got scrapes and bruises on his noggin to prove it.
“I was getting in when he hit the gas and my jacket got caught in the door,” he said yesterday. “I was screaming at him to stop, but he would not stop. I struggled and struggled until I finally pulled free.”
Horton said the cab roared off before he could snag the license plate number.
“I’m a black guy yes, but I have a job, I have a college degree, I live in a nice area in Bushwick,” said Horton, 23.
“This is racial profiling and it’s sickening. It’s ridiculous trying to find a cab that will take you where you want to go if you’re a black man.”
